Every time you see the clutter of files on your desktop build up, use QuickShift. For a Mac, it is the fastest way to move files around.
We tend to clutter our Mac without effort. Even if we take the pain to clean up & organise, we again end up in the same state after a few more days. Knowing the inevitable clutter that is going to happen, we wish if there was a less painful way to organise.
QuickShift, with all its power features, makes the whole process of sorting and storing easier and faster.
* FEATURES *
● DRAG AND DROP + QUICKSHIFT POWER FEATURES:
QuickShift provides instant access to your most used folders from wherever you are - through status bar, HotKey (Command +1) and Services menu. Just drag and drop files to QuickShift and then move or copy with the power features of QuickShift. Creating folders, subfolders and hierarchies to organise, moving files and folders to locations deep in hierarchy are all handled in a jiffy.
● SAVE EFFORT ON DRAG & DROP - JUST SELECT FILES, WE WILL MAGICALLY PICK THEM!
Select files in the Finder that you want to move or copy. Press (Command + 1). QuickShift will automatically pick these files for you. No drag and drop required
● [NEW] - QUICKLY MOVE RECENT FILES!
QuickShift will bring the most recent files to you for you to shift them. Sometimes you download a file, or you drag a drop a file from your mail to the desktop or at times you just create a folder on the desktop. QuickShift will give you easy and instant access to these files so that you can organise them with no effort!
● POWER MOVE OR COPY:
We create lots of folders and hierarchies while cleaning up clutter and organising our Mac. Once you drag and drop files to QuickShift use power move to create subfolders and even complex hierarchies in no time!
Under Desktop we can create a complex hierarchy of folders like Folder A inside Folder B inside Folder C just by typing C/B/A.
● DEEP MOVE OR COPY:
The more you organise, the deeper the file hierarchy. And then it becomes a pain to access. With Deep move or copy, you can quickly move or copy to any folder that is far to access.
● QUICKLY SHIFT FILES FROM EXTERNAL DRIVES:
QuickShift will auto detect external drives that you connect and add it to your most used folders grid. This gives you instant access to copy content from the computer to your drive.
Press Command + 1 to launch QuickShift from anywhere!
● NOTIFICATION ON CLUTTER:
When your desktop gets cluttered, QuickShift automatically sends you a notification to clean up.
Unlike similar applications, QuickShift will let you undo moving or copying of files.

Ratings and Reviews
A Must Have for College Students
As a college student, I constanty save files onto my desktop for easy access. However, it quickly turns into a chaotic scramble of pictures and words. Quick Shift allows me to easily organize my files right away. I no longer need to hover over folder after folder to place an item exactly where I want it. The app is easy to use and perfect for those of us who put off decluttering till the last possible moment!
I’m a bit frustrated with the app so far. It's only copying files instead of moving them. Leaving me with duplicate files. That’s a bit counterproductive when trying to de-clutter. Also, I don’t see any way to disable the external HD auto detect. I turned it on to test it out, but I actually don’t need that feature, because my external HD is mainly for back-ups. So now it persistently shows my 3 external HDs and I can’t turn it off.
Developer Response ,
The default behaviour of the app is to Move files. You will have have to press the Option button to Copy the files. The default option becomes Copy only if you are moving to a external drive. Please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a call to take you through the process.
Plus we now have an option to turn off the feature where external drives are automatically detected.
Also please download the latest version 2.0. It should solve the issues. And please feel free to mail us, if an issue still persists.
